2023/24 NFPL Awards


The 2023/24 National Futsal Premier League individual awards were announced immediately following the Championship Match on the live stream. Let's take a moment to examine how brilliant these individuals were over the course of the season.

2023/24 Golden Ball Winner: Gabe Villagomez

Awarded to the League's best all-around player, Gabe Villagomez is a deserving recipient. He was deadly from beginning to end, starting and ending the season on top of the leaderboard for most points from Week 1 to Week 18. He maintained that form into the playoffs, grabbing 2 assists in the semifinal victory for Grand Rapids OLé and another 3 goals and 1 assist in the Championship Match. 

An incredible season and a worthy winner of the 2023/24 Golden Ball. 


Pulling in his second award of the season, this one is objectively given to the player with the most goals scored. Again, Gabe Villagomez led from start to finish, opening his account on the opening night of the season with 2 goals at home for Grand Rapids OLé against Detroit Imperial Futsal and finishing his season with a hat trick in the Championship Match over Colorado Futsal Academy. 

And in between those games, he racked up another 17 as he terrorized teams again and again in the Midwest. Cadence SFC, in particular, fell victim to Villagomez as he scored 12 goals against them in 2 games, both on the road. 

The final numbers for Villagomez through the season and playoffs: 31 points, spread between 22 goals and 9 assists.

2023/24 Golden Glove Winner: Robert Damron

After starting the season by dropping their first 3 games, the turnaround for Futsal Factory Academy captain and goalkeeper Robert Damron was nothing short of incredible. 

They proceeded to go on a 6-game winning streak, making their way into the playoffs before narrowly falling to the eventual champions. In that 6-game stretch, Futsal Factory Academy outscored their opponents 56 to 25 while Damron worked his way into the 2024 March Team of the Month.


A huge congratulations to all of the individual winners of the 2023/24 NFPL Awards this season! We look forward to our players and teams continuing to raise the levels of their abilities, pushing each other further, breaking records, and growing the game here in the United States.
